Reports: Cross Haynesworth and Bush Off Your Wishlists (if they were on them)

Reports: Cross Haynesworth and Bush Off Your Wishlists (if they were on them)

The local player movement scene has been a little slower than most people might have thought  since the lifting of the NFL lockout, with the Eagles notably sitting on the sidelines in terms of announced deals. Of course, we know that Kevin Kolb will be traded, with most but not all signs pointing to a deal with the Arizona Cardinals and involving Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a draft pick coming this way.

But throughout the waning period of the lockout, we also saw the Eagles linked to names like Plaxico Burress, Albert Haynesworth, and Reggie Bush, among others. Well, after yesterday's spate of minor-name trades, Thursday is gearing up to be a busy day, with at least Haynesworth and Reggie Bush reportedly on the move, and not to Philly.

Jay Glazer reports that Bush will be moved to Miami once a contract with the Dolphins is worked out, and Adam Schefter says the Patriots have sent a 2013 fifth rounder to Washington for the services of Mr. Haynesworth. No word on whether it had mustard on it.

It had previously been speculated that the Redskins would take just about anything to keep Haynesworth from winding up in Philly, preventing their nightmare signing of the big man from compounding with interest. Mission accomplished there, and they even managed to get a higher pick for him than they did for Donovan McNabb yesterday.

Bush was probably always a long-shot at best, as there aren't a lot of touches to go around the Eagles' backfield after Lesean McCoy has gotten his.

Meanwhile, after all the Phillies caps and Vick stories, the Eagles haven't been seriously linked to Plax at all this week. In fact, the team previously seen as the least likely to land him, his former club the Giants, appears to be one of two finalists for his services, along with the Pittsburgh Steelers, his other former club.

After the pending Kolb news, the Birds will turn to free agency once that market opens. The names most commonly heard on that front right now are DE Jason Babin and LB Stephen Tulloch. More on those possibilities as we hurtle closer to free agency.

Sixers to play on new court design, wear special City Edition jerseys with old school bell

The Sixers announced on Wednesday morning that they'll be unveiling their fourth edition jersey in the near future to be worn on seven tribute nights with a "Spirit of 76" theme to them.

It will include a bell logo on both the jerseys and at center court of the Wells Fargo Center.

"'Spirit of 76,' introduces a new 'bell' logo, inspired by imagery from Philadelphia's 1976 bicentennial celebration, a special center-court logo signed by 76ers full season ticket members, collectible tickets and membership boxes for season ticket members," the team said in a statement.

The team will also unveil three new sculptures at their Camden training facility to go along with the campaign.

“We are excited to announce the ‘Spirit of 76’ campaign as it provides another incredible opportunity to celebrate the proud tradition of the 76ers with the city of Philadelphia, our fans, players and alumni,” said Philadelphia 76ers Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Chris Heck. “The ‘Spirit of 76’ campaign honors the legendary icons who paved the way for this organization, while recognizing the passion and intensity of our fans.”

The City Edition jerseys will join the Association Edition (home), Icon Edition (road), and Statement Edition jerseys this season.
